The Quetzal, the Mayan’s sacred bird, are fast disappearing, as are their food source, the avocados. The wood of the avocado trees are coveted and they are being cut down at a rapid rate. My hope for this Quetzal with the avocado in his mouth is to be able to re-seed the avocado. With self-care, it can adapt and find its home in other parts of the land.
